Meet actress, activist and author Annabelle Gurwitch. A lung cancer diagnosis was the shocker to the year Annabelle Gurwitch already had going in 2020. She’d written a new book and started as a co-host on a podcast called Tiny Victories. Then, she went to have a Covid test and left with a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis. Annabelle’s story of an accidental lung cancer diagnosis is a very common story among lung cancer patients. In Annabelle’s case, getting an accurate diagnosis indicating her biomarker, EGFR Exon21. Identifying her lung cancer biomarker set her on a treatment course that is manageable as well as saving her life. Now Annabelle is in a position to “pay it forward” by reaching out to others who may benefit from hearing her story.
